ETE: Building Momentum One Scholar at a Time


Ana-Maria Mikhail, a MSc student in Metals and Energy at Imperial College London, the secret sauce to cement a career in the mining industry will be the momentum of scholarships like BMO’s Equity Through Education program. Raised in Kuwait and then Portugal, she says support from the BMO scholarship offered her the financial stability to be able to dedicate herself to her Master’s, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. “As a young woman, I'm happy to see more universities and large mining companies offer scholarships for women to enter the industry and challenge some of the barriers that we do face,” says Mikhail, who also attended BMO Global Metals and Mining conference in March. “I feel like you have to see a kind of momentum in that sense,” she said. “When you see other women around you, pursuing careers in this industry, you feel more inspired to do so yourself.”

On September 23rd, BMO’s Equity Through Education program celebrated 17 years of supporting scholarships, education, and inclusion by donating institutional equity trading commissions to charitable organizations.
